COLUMBUS-The Untold Story: A Book That's Changing History

Buy it here > <

Another nutty conspiracy theory! That’s what I first supposed. I now believe that Columbus is guilty of a 
huge fraud carried out over two decades. – Professor James T. McDonough Jr., St. Joseph’s University.

COLUMBUS-The Untold Story

"COLUMBUS The untold story" book cover
In the year 1444, near long-lost Constantinople, a Christian monarch breaks his truce with the Muslims, but Fate double crosses him. He is crushed in battle. All of his personal knights are slain around him, and he vanishes without a trace. Some years later, on Madeira Island, 2,500 miles to the west, a mysterious Knight of Saint Catherine of Mount Sinai marries into the Portuguese elite . . . and has a son.

     Astonishing as it may seem, these two impossibly remote events were connected -- and the clouded genesis of Christopher Columbus can thereby be once and forever resolved. The key to unlocking the mystery was waiting in a place where nobody had ever looked before.
     25 years of research has pieced together a stunning array of artifacts and data, from one end of Europe to another, from Asia, Africa and the Americas: a chapel ruin, a ceiling mural in a private palace, DNA test results, an impressive diversity of documents, keenly analyzed . . . and a sword, unearthed by a Bulgarian peasant, that found its way to a museum in Saint Petersburg.
     The study and comparison of carefully censored State archives also helped explain Columbus’s life -- hitherto enshrouded in the deceitful machinations of power politics, false identities, and false discoveries in the Age of Exploration. Myth has at last been separated from fact, exposing what actually transpired.
     Being extremely fond of writing memoirs, journals and letters, the man known as Columbus left a great deal of this overwhelming proof himself. Now, 523 years later, his writings assisted in his own undoing.    
Many other clues -- meant to be deciphered generations later, when the need for secrecy had passed -- have been painstakingly gathered and analyzed. Some were cryptically displayed in the details of portraiture and esoteric writings, others in the most obvious features of one of the greatest works of Spanish Baroque drama, on heraldry, on a gravestone, via signatures and pseudonyms. What emerges is the picture of a consummate and cunning double-agent, with a bold and grandiose agenda.
     Enter this 500-year-old labyrinth and discover the unimaginable: a medieval conspiracy so audacious, so massive, and so well executed that it fooled the world for half a millennium.

COLUMBUS-THE UNTOLD STORY is a magnum opus and by no means should be considered a work of pseudo history or just another source of nutty conspiracy theories. Rosa’s numerous reliable findings and solid theories would make Sherlock Holmes jealous. The History of Columbus has many mixed-up facts and personalities, and maybe the time has come for the discoverer’s life to be finally rewritten.   – Renowned Greek-Polish historian, Miltiades Varvounis

Thanks to Capt. Peter J. Piaseckyj for this correction:
I am so grateful for your outstanding scholarship and dedication. I have been a seaman all my life (I am 73 years old) and have read about explorations our world with great interest. You have added much original information for which I am grateful. There is very little in english of Portuguese exploration except for a book I have read recently, "A History of Portugal and the Portuguese Empire" by A. R.
There is a question, perhaps I am not comprehending correctly, but on page 17 of you book you give the following information.
Today's coordinates, Greenwich, Long. 000-00 E/W, Lisbon is Lat. 38-43 N and Long. 009-08 W
Canary Islands is Long. 15-24 W
Ptolemy coordinates, Canary Islands Long. 000-00 E/W
Lisbon is Lat. 40-15 N and Long. 005-10E
Please check my Calculation  Canary Long. 15-24 W minus  Lisbon Long. 009-08 W
Equals 006-16 Degrees, so if Canaries are Long 000-00 E/W then Lisbon is  006-16 E
Which is not 005-10 E as you claim in you book.

Sincerely yours,

I have been waiting a good many years, too many to count, in fact, for this book by Manuel Rosa. If you want a book that is well researched, complete with details and sources, then this is the tome for you. Twenty-five years of research have pieced together a stunning array of artifacts and data, complete with DNA test results; one that resulted in the deceitfulness of power, of politics, false identities and false discoveries. Herein you will be able follow the author, as he connects the dots to a medieval conspiracy, so massive, so bold, so risky, and so well executed, that it has continued to fool the world for 500 years. This book, without a doubt, is one of the best to captivate me in a very long time. Manuel Rosa makes an exceptionally strong case for those who still insist on believing otherwise. (Amazon Review)

Dear friends, 
I strongly suggest  you buy and read the above mentioned book (in english). This is the most serious and in depth study I have ever read on the subject ( and I have read many...) This may well be a fundamental truth breakthrough arising at a time were we may expect many other emerging truth breakthroughs.
All the best,

Paulo C.


Yes!  I have now read the entire book.  Your detailed research is impressive, as is your  passion. Piotr and I empathize completely – we are both passionate about our research.  It is a blessing to have a “vocation” in the sense of a true calling, to wake up each day with something meaningful to pursue. As promised, I have written our historian friend at Oxford to ask his help...
We look forward to a continuing collaboration.

Manuel Rosa has done an outstanding job of debunking the 'official' Genoa peasant weaver Cristoforo Colombo myth. He does this with extensive documentation of Segismundo Henriques Jagiello's personal family history, life in Portugal and Spain, personal documents and letters, etc. Manuel also goes into great detail about the political climate and circumstances surrounding Portugal and Spain as well.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone that is interested in discovering the truth about the man falsely called Colombo.

This fine book sifts the BS from the facts in the history of the man we still call Columbus, though he never used that name. 1st mistake historians made was relying on the novelist, Washington Irving's book on the life of the admiral, and Admiral Samuel Morrison's (also not a historian) bio; the 2nd big mistake was not realizing who and what King John/João II of Portugal was, let alone utilizing the many Portuguese sources: absurd, since Portugal was the only place we know for a fact where Colón/Columbus lived before going to Castile.
I have always laughed at Admiral Morrison's ridiculous statement as to how a penniless woo weaver who washed up on the shores of Portugal managed to marry a noblewoman with ties to the the king of Portugal.

Dear Mr. Rosa,
   I have to say that I am fascinated by your book! It is the most thoroughly researched book on the topic of the man the world knows as "Christopher Columbus" that I have ever read. I have not yet finished the book as of yet but, I would like another copy for a friend.
 If you could be so kind as to provide me with a link to the English edition, I would be most grateful.

Kindest Regards,

really liked it
Read from July 03 to August 05, 2016

Fantastic book. The author methodically checks off the lies, the misinformation, the forgeries, and focuses on the aspects of Colón's life the historians have ignored or tried to explain away with ridiculous assertions. In particular, Rosa includes extensive family charts that show Colón's family was very close to the man to whom he wrote in Portuguese, calling Colón, "our special friend," King John II. It's clear in reading biographies of Columbus that the writers have never understood who Kiing John II was, or his relationship to Colón, which makes it impossible to know who Colón truly was.

I cannot wait for more information to come to light, whether it be written or DNA; more proof that the poor nobody from Genoa was not in fact the man we've come to call Columbus.
